‘Only love dispels hate’


Looking at the front page of yesterday’s newspaper, I saw images of a bloodied child being rushed into a chaotic hospital and the family of a young soldier experiencing deep grief at his funeral. My thoughts turned to the words of a wise teacher:

“In this world
Hate never yet dispelled hate.
Only love dispels hate.
This is the law,
Ancient and inexhaustible.”
The Dhammapada
